Learning With Digital Stories:

June 17, 2017

I chose to remix vintage public-domain media to explain a modern topic or to tell a modern story for week two’s assignment. Specifically, vintage futurism per, “Edit vintage videos with open source music to create a music video.” The Apollo space mission stock footage was videotaped off my CPU screen – you can see me holding my phone and taping at certain parts 😦 . The screen grab is from https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kdFNVEloIrQ.

Using iMovie I cut the clip down from 7 plus minutes and synced up an improvisational track I recorded this week with my band Snake Pliskin.  The track has an ambient space feel that worked well with the vintage footage. We are looping an arpeggiated A chord and stacking tape loops, delays, live drum rhythms, and a sample from last week’s daily challenge. It is totally strange, but I think it works as a vintage remix.
